. there seems to be a disagreement about the use of switch backs and maybe you can talk from your point of view why you use them and let's start with that. >> okay. i think in terms of knowing -- we don't get up in the morning and say we have a goal to switchbacks. they're service management technique or tactic to make adjustment to recover from a significant delay and for us, and this is when we talked about the grand jury report when we first were briefed on it our concern was this was a lost opportunity, a lost opportunity to talk about muni service. in other words, what are the things that cause delays? what are the things we need to be doing to improve on time performance from crew reliability? what are the specific actions? what are the specific things? that's what we wanted to have. the higher the on time performance the less runs that are missed, the less vehicles break down, there is a less of a need for switchbacks. switchbacks are a symptom to us or a tactic, not part of the problem, so when do we use them? we use them when you have a significant break down, delay in service,
of balboa park station which i use very frequently. balboa park station is a station that 10,000 people a day plus use to go to city college or get to downtown. it's our biggest transit hub outside of the downtown area of san francisco, in the whole bay area region. and it is completely inadequate. it looks like a hub that you would expect to find behind the eastern block -- an eastern block country back in the 1980s. it has not had any real substantial investment in years. i pushed a little bit to get some curb ramps which is the tip of the iceberg of what is actually needed. this is a video i'd like to show of what the conditions are and i hope, colleagues, you can actually take about 15 seconds to look at this. this is what people face every day and it's a very dangerous situation that we have. john, if you could.

of the scripture in regards to us actually being in the time of the end is correct. now, there's two ways to do this. it's doubled. the first way to do this, to determine that we're in the last days is to take the 560 years from the destruction of the temple to jesus christ, multiplying it by 3-1/2, the figure given in the book of revelation to the second coming and add the first 560. that would give us 2,5 20 years. the second way that we can verify our math is found in the mysterious [bell]. >> thank you very much. next speaker. >>> [speaker not understood] seventh century china. then introduced into europe in 13th century by trade with china. so, where is san francisco public library? capital currency is means of labor exchange for production of basic needs. strict relation to right to life, control ranks of class, give financial cost its prime. this dictated exchange knows antagonism and revolutions, but not its end. education, schooltion, work ethic for basic needs, childbirth humanity to death. a financial cost that as of 2012 international world order is based upon financial cost. capita
that is almost diminished, and that is the black color. i want to thank the mayor or listening to those of us who've met with him to share our perspective on what we should do collectively and not in isolation to make sure we will not have another press conference to bemoan, complain, wine, cry -- whine, cry about this problem of violence. some do not like to hear this true statement, but the bible says ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. this community will never be free. we will never be liberated from this problem until all of our allies and our friends acknowledge that the epicenter of this problem comes from folk who look like me. i have presided over too many funerals. possibly more than any preacher in this town. persons who are not members of third baptist church. but we are gracious to let them have our facility, to accommodate them. i feel that we have something to shout about today. no stop and frisk. the mayor has said that. but the mentor of martin luther king said, "he or she who is behind in the race of life must run faster in order to catch up ." we do not ha
, like those farm workers that taught us to work very hard day and night, like my mother who was a house maid in the presidio and taught me to work very, very hard everyday. like my father who is a shoe repair man in north point in embarcadero who taught me to work very hard and all those central americans who taught me to struggle and a balanced peace in our communities, so with that i would like to say it's a honor to be part of this administration and my vision is to be hold public safety in a balanced way, but at the same time looking at long-term goals that really sustain violence prevention services like a community, as a community, as a united community of san francisco, and so today i just want to honor elpueblo. [speaking spanish] , the village united will never be defeated and i trurl believe in that spirit and i honor those ancestors and all the people that taught us that concept and i hope i can bring that spirit to you and work really hard to make our community safer. thank you.

also said that you expect to see 11 of us here to at some point at roll call really follow-up roll call with a haiku at each of our weekly meetings. and i look forward to doing workshops. i know that you're encouraging all of us to really develop our artistic side as well, but i really appreciate that. you also said that you're not sure how many politicians would go for a poetry lesson, but i think you have a lot of other ideas on how the arts community can enrich kind of those of us that make political decisions in the city as well. and the last thing that i really respected was that you said that you're not deceived by the honor for you as an individual, but that you always accepted it on behalf of your community. i know you're a founder of the mission cultural center and there's a whole bunch of things i could say. but i just appreciate that you're saying this is kind of not just you, but it's also the whole mission district and the whole latino and chicano community as well. so, could you come up? and i wanted to know, supervisor campos, wanted to say anything else. -- say anything

that location into preferably owned spaces to create a much more tenable expense stream for us, and stabilize our expenses of occupancy. so we have reduced that amount in 2009, we were down to 116,000 square feet and now we're at 81,400 square feet at 875 stevenson street. that property is right behind what's called 1355 market street, or what's been rebranded as market square, where trirt an --twitter and others have mod into. that resurgence has lit a fuse to move forward with new improvements by the ownership of both buildings, which is forcing the item before you today of an early exit from 875 stevenson. our current lease agreement allows us to remain on the premises until may of 2015. so the one agreement, that has us exiting, would call for an early exit by no later than february 4, 2013. in consideration for that early exit, we've negotiated a payment to cover the cost of the move itself, as well as the increased cost of occupancy because rental rates have increased since we struck the agreement at 875 stevenson. so that's sort of where we're at, and why we're leaving. the other quest
to subjects who are mentally ill and may not really be in a right state of mind and making sure we use alternatives other than deadly force. kelly has really been instrumental in sort of moving that training program forward and making sure all of our officers know how to respond. kelly, you've been just an amazing public servant in san francisco, and i'm thrilled to have appointed you to the mental health board and honor you today. congratulations.

, the open conversations, the honest conversation bs what is working, what is not working and will help us in the future in the city. thank you president chiu. >> thank you. i want to thank you for your work you have done at department of technology and tough economic times and the fact of the matter is your department has been subjected to the lion's share of budget cuts we were forced to do and not asking departments to make similar cuts in their it situation and i think that is part of the tension and why we shouldn't know been able to make headway. you allude to the fact until you get direction from the top about need of centralization you had to form partnerships and you as the head of department of technology can't tell other heads to cooperate and you have to work out and partnership. one of the things that i wished the grand jury spent more time on. this is the trend we're seeing in agencies and governments around the country. by in large most governments have a growing decentralization and we know we're not doing that for everything but there are functions that need to be dece
health center that has allowed us to really grow the resource center to what we are. today we have a full-time clinic for homeless people and we're trying to really merge behavioral health so we can do the best we can do. and finally i want to honor my [speaker not understood] who has given me [speaker not understood].

report for us and i thank you for many of the comments we will reiterate as part of the formal report, but to thank i would like to thank chairman farrell and president chiu for giving us this opportunity to sort of fill in a little bit of the things that we really think are important to state publicly about what we have found and what we think is wrong in technology. i would like to thank also the members of the civil grand jury who are here. i feel at home and with a meeting of with you all here and need a roundtable and everybody else and always neat in private and if you for that and i would like to thank the participants that met with us individually and together to discuss their proposals and the future. the title of "deja vu all over again: san francisco's technology needs a culture shock." reflects a history that we uncovered within city government t appears from the responses that we got from city administrators and some department heads no matter who says it or how many times it's said major changes to how technology is organized, managed and evaluated remains mired in a
frame. >> okay. i will use that as a default, for time period for coit and department of technology to work with this on the budget analyst or controller. for finding four and appoint two members without delay. from my understanding will be implemented and while the city has not moved on it for six months i expect this to be. >> >> six years i expect the city to work on this and get it done in the next six months or six weeks. next is have a plan and budget and reviewed by coit and to the mayor's office and the board of supervisors. again what is fascinating about the answers and all of the agencies are across the map. some say yes. some say no. some say it's implemented. some say it's not. it will be implemented and always a cit budget but not decisions related to that budget. recommendation number six. subject to coit approval of the i kr.d t budget and staffing plans coit and the cio must monitor adherence to these plans and i think what i will say for this should be implemented within the next six months. one of the challenges we face challenges here at the board and
'm not going to fight with you. one of us is going to hurt. they sleep at the foot bridge down at the school nearby. and i saw the custodian trying to lead somebody out, and i explained to him that this person is mentally ill, what was wrong with him, what could be done to save them. now, mitch katz went down to work on mental health ward to keep his medical license. if you talk to a psych emergency services doctor they'd tell you he didn't know what he was doing. they'll tell you further he forced out dr. bob oken as the chief psychiatrist in san francisco. bob oken is one of the greatest psychiatrists in the world. he's a pillar of doctors without borders. he's treated people around the world. he was the director of mental health in massachusetts. he was a director of mental health in new hampshire. he's practicing on market street in private practice now. the reason he was forced out is because he wouldn't get people out of the acute ward beds when they were going to die on the streets because they hadn't been stabilized. and if you take people and you put them in a ward, you can stabiliz
raised, not just by us, are more than ignored. they are mocked by a city administration fearing change. we believe that only the mayor can make the changes that we and others have proposed. no one else has the direct authority over government operations than he has. he can do it if he is willing to put the passionate leadership he puts in attracting tech business to the city and improving the organization and technology within san francisco government. perhaps we have to wait for a different administration for there to be a fair hearing on ways to improve technology. perhaps you, the board of supervisors, can take up this challenge. we hope you will. there was a better ending to our title report, deja vu all over again. that is "where there is a will there is a way .". thank you. >> thank you for the time and effort put into that report. any questions right now president chiu. all right. with that i would like to ask the mayor's office to come up. cindy is here representing the mayor's team with some responses and perhaps follow up questions. >> good afternoon supervisors. i am c
